Group subscriptions


 TopGroup

The word "group" refers to any not-for-profit organization, educational institution, company, corporation or enterprise.

BAnQ serves libraries through its services to the library community (in French only) and the interlibrary loan service.

 

 TopDesignated representative

A designated representative is chosen by the group to take out a library card and use BAnQ's various services according to the terms and conditions in effect. The group's director must advise BAnQ of any change in the list of designated representatives.

 

 TopServices provided

Group subscriptions entitle group representatives to use all services, collections and equipment offered on site at the Grande Bibliothèque or remotely through the BAnQ Web portal, with the exception of the electronic resources for which BAnQ holds licences for its individual subscribers.

A group can designate up to 15 representatives. It must provide BAnQ with the name, telephone number and work e-mail address of each of them. Each representative obtains a subscriber's card, which can be used to borrow up to 40 items.

Representatives of children's organizations can borrow materials from the Children's library (Espace Jeunes) and from the printed music collection. Representatives of adult organizations have adult borrowing privileges.

 

 TopDuration of subscriptions

Subscriptions to BAnQ expire after two years. In order to renew a group subscription, the organization's director has to fill out the form again and update the list of designated representatives.
